I stayed here for 2 nights during a recent trip down the California coast with my husband, sister and her boyfriend. We were quite impressed with the building. The lobby and meeting room area are perfectly preserved with 1930's-era detailing and slight modern touches. The upper floors are very office-like, but the rooms are modern and beautifully decorated. The beds were very comfortable, the mini fridge was great to have, and the shower head was adjustable. The only issue we had was the room temperature seemed quite inconsistent, even with the A/C running. The first night we had the A/C on all night, set at about 67 and we woke up a few times thinking it was too warm, plus the A/C unit is quite loud when it turns on. But the second night we set it lower and just let the fan run which helped a lot. I also would have thought being in the downtown area that it would be loud with street noise but we were on the 9th floor and hardly heard a thing. Plus, it's an easy walk to the great restaurants and bars of the Gaslamp district.
